    The month was June last year and I was taking a break from the work when my sister called and told me about how she won a two day trip to Thailand for 2 people from work. I immediately packed my bags and left for New Delhi.

    We took a Bangkok Airways flight from IGI, New Delhi on a Friday night to Chiang Rai International airport where we got a Visa-on-Arrival and reached our destination on the early Saturday morning.

    We were staying in a resort next to a serene river with a friendly atmosphere. It was just 5 min drive away from the city’s center.

    We started our explorations in one of Thailand’s most famous gems- Wat Rong Khun. It looks like a temple…but it’s not; it is, in fact, an unconventional contemporary ART exhibit! It was surely a fantastic place to spend the morning.

    We reached our next stop, The Golden Triangle, by a minibus from the Chiang Rai Bus Terminal. This is where Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand meet, separated by a natural river where the famous Mekong River meets the Ruak River.

    After we’re done splashing about, we moved to learn about the history of The Golden Triangle at The House of Opium. This innocuous river point used to be a hotspot for growing and trading opium!

    This is surprisingly one of the best museums in Thailand. We found old drug paraphernalia, records of exchanges with the CIA and even a real mini opium plantation growing inside the place.

    It was already mid-day and we were at the Doi Tung Royal Villa, the former residence of the mother of the present king (also known as the princess mother) to get a taste of Thai royalty.

    We walked right up to the top of Doi Tung at 1,300 meters above sea level. There we saw a hilltop Buddhist shrine built in 911 AD called Wat Phra That Doi Tung. The small shrine was brilliant gold and was shining incredibly under sunlight.

    Finally, we were back to the city and winded the day up at Chiang Rai’s night bazaar with a soul-satiating dinner. We went back to the resort and dozed off.
